INDIAN CHIEF
 
Ayers 1929
TB - Historic - Early Season
Description from Cooley's Gardens catalog for 1937: "...while classed as one of our superior reds, it carries a bronzy overcast, being regarded by some as a red blend. At any rate, 'Indian Chief' is one of the most popular of the newer things, and a credit to Dr. Ayres, its introducer. The velvety falls are deep blood-red, blended with bronze, and the standards are considerably lighter in tone. A large flower, quite tall, and very well branched."
